With the introduction of the Polaroid camera in 1947 it became possible, for the first time, to develop photos immediately, without the intervention of a photo lab. The technique quickly enjoyed widespread popularity among artists. Veldhoen used the Polaroid as aide mémoire and for preliminary studies and sometimes even for capturing fleeting situations. But for him, the Polaroid was more than just a tool. This can be seen in the polaroids taken as independent images and taken with a great sense of ambience, light, colour and composition, such as the intimate insights into Veldhoen’s home life, portraits, selfportraits, nudes, holiday snaps and images of a documentary nature.
